It's nearly 'Christmas Time'

This will be my last posting for Just Us Girls this year
as the Jugheads are taking a few weeks off
to celebrate Christmas with family and friends.
Lisa is our Hostess for our TREND WEEK
and she has chosen SEQUINS.
I am sure we all have containers full of sequins
and they are always fun to add to our cards.
I decided to make a shaker card in circle shapes
(cut out with Spellbinder  die)
with some bling to make them into Christmas decorations.
Again I went for non traditional colours..
The background to my baubles are inked with stars.
My card base is purple and topped with iridescent paper.
Baubles are filled with different sequins beads and a few
punched stars. I also added a few stars punched out
with glitter paper some rhinestones and sequins to finish.
My Merry Christmas die is again cut from Elizabeth Craft die.
Please pop over to our Blog Here 
to check out the talented Design Team's creations.
I am heading to my daughter's for Christmas/New Year 
and so looking forward to spending time with some of my family.
She lives in tropical Queensland
(we are further south)
so will be hot and humid.
Air conditioning will come in handy.
So to sign off for now I will say Cherrio
and wish you all a Very Merry Christmas and
a Happy Safe and Healthy New Year.
